Me in Poetry
“I” am backwardly motivated, over sophisticated, over-understand the need for demand.
“I” like when I’m told “No”, what I hear is the word, “Go”.
“I” turn “No”, around and it’s “On” now!
“I” will seek out every obstacle, for me it is symbolical.
“I” will justify what has been is criticized.
“I” see better in reverse.
Never doubting what I was told, as blogged over the past two days. There were just something’s in life that you have no control over. A generational curse combined with ancient adage meant that we will have to suffer gladly and pray.
Somehow deep down however, I knew even logic could be challenged, wisdom could be subjective and ancient could be old. I would need to see life in reverse.
What does an immigrant coal miner and young Polish women have in common? They see life in reverse. Is America the Land of the Free, or the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.
If I were able to keep living rent free, food free and consequence free, “I” don’t know if “I” could have ever bought myself to the point that “I” see myself.
And If “I” never heard the story of the immigrant coal miner and the young Polish women, I may not have known to turn around.

This has been Sharon Saffold blogging on purpose and not by chance, because chances are I will blog again.
Make it a great day!
